It is difficult to exaggerate the macroeconomic and political relevance of the public transfers to the private sector in the Brazilian economy. These transfers have reached 15% of GPD in the last decade. However, there are just a few papers analyzing the evolution of these transfers. Given that, this paper has three main goals. First, to show how to construct an annual series compatible with the Brazilian national accounts system (ref. 2000) over the period 1995-2012. Second, to refine and extend (up until 2012) the previous effort of Santos, Macedo e Silva and Ribeiro (2010). Finally, we provide a short analysis of the numbers estimated for the aforementioned transfers.
